    Legal and institutional aspects of the management of fisheries in the Bangladesh exclusive economic zone 1979

    In 1974 the Government of Bangladesh declared a 200-mile EEZ, although no action was taken by the fisheries authorities at the time to set down detailed legal controls over the management of fisheries in that zone. In August 1978, however, the Bangladesh Gov. made initial enquiries regarding the possibility of legal assistance being provided by FAO in adapting its laws to cover foreign fishing operations in its EEZ. Because Bangladesh had earlier in 1978 signed a joint venture agreement with Tha iland there was expressed an urgent need for assistance of this king. As a result, an initial visit by a FAO headquarters staff member to Bangladesh was arranged for the period 12-15 Sept. 1978, to assess the type and scope of assistance required. Several estimates of the fishery resources in the Bay of Bengal have been made. From these surveys it was possible to identify three major fishing grounds which are known as “South patches”, “Middle ground” and “Swatch of no ground”.
